With the latest championship in his bag, where does this place Steph Curry among all-time greats? He should be in the Top 5, no doubt.
Steph Curry wins 4th championship
Steph Curry is in the NBA’s Top 75 players, but with the recent championship, he should be in anyone’s Top 5. He’s that good and has been showing it to everyone for years. So the slander has to stop. Let’s show our appreciation while he’s still around.
The Golden State Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics in Game 6, 90-103. Steph scored 34 points in the pivotal closeout game. As expected, the experience became a major factor in this series, and the Boston Celtics’ lack of it showed. Curry was named the Finals MVP for the first time in his career after averaging 31.2 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals in the Finals. It was a masterclass from Chef Curry, who left no stones unturned and ensured his team won this one.
Some would claim he couldn’t carry the team last season by himself. Klay Thompson was out. Draymond Green missed games. Curry did what he was supposed to do. And that’s all you could ask for. Now, the team is back, reloaded, and everyone is healthy. He still delivered amazing numbers on and off the court. Chef Curry’s highlights bring billions of views across the NBA’s social media platform. The guy is a genius and a bonafide superstar.
Let’s talk about the records he smashed. One, broke the all-time made 3-points one. Two, Steph became the first player to record 150 3pt FGM in NBA Finals. Now that he has a Finals MVP in his bag, there should be no reason to doubt his place among the all-time greats.
The numbers speak for themselves
The Top 5 rankings vary depending on who you ask, But Steph Curry should be up there. He changed the game with his shooting and set high standards with hard work and perseverance. The Warriors have the roster to compete for championships for a few more years, which is bad news for the rest of the league.
Here’s what Curry has achieved so far: 4-time NBA champion, Finals MVP, 2-time regular season MVP - first unanimous MVP ever - 8-time NBA All-Star, 8-time All-NBA selection, 4-time All-NBA First Team. And he’s not even done yet.
For all the inspiration he gave to the younger generation that a 6’2” guard, who was once criticized for having no athleticism and was too slow, could accomplish it all through self-belief and hard work, Steph Curry deserves to be in the Top 5 of everyone’s list. Case closed.
